    We are just starting out on our chicken adventure, and will be ordering our first chicks shortley. I have spent quite a bit of time with assorted poultry over the years, but these will be our first. Any advise, tips or tricks are greatly appreciated. :D

    Welcome! I love raising the baby chicks - it will be a lot of fun for the whole family. Do you know what you are ordering yet?

    I really like the looks of the Barred Rocks & Dominiques, but I really don't want to have them go through the mail... I want to fins something locally, but no luck yet....

    Baby chicks are SOOO sweet, I remember crawling in the brooding box with the baby turkeys as a child.... I just loved them so... and the coop when they were grown :p
